“We typically trade our beliefs about the market, and once we’ve made up our minds about those beliefs, we’re not likely to change them.  And when we play the markets, we assume that we are considering all of the available information.  Instead, our beliefs, through selective perception, may have eliminated the most useful information.”
— Van K. Tharp

You are the most important factor in your success.  Understand and overcome your biases.  Use a trading system that’s right for you.

I believe that mind, method, and money management are the cornerstones of your complete game plan for trading success.

FYI: Our latest option recommendation, on Barrick Gold Corporation (GOLD),  is trading +30% in one day on a 2% move in the underlying shares, with an always known and strictly limited risk!

That’s the Superleverage power of my method on display.

“American workers are struggling in large part because they are underpaid—and they are underpaid because 40 years of trickle-down policies have rigged the economy in favor of wealthy people like me.  Americans are more highly educated than ever before, but despite that, and despite nearly record-low unemployment, most American workers—at all levels of educational attainment—have seen little if any wage growth since 2000.”
